Met Gala 2022, all the looks that bewitched the charity catwalk
Like every year, the Met Gala has attracted the attention of global fashion. The charity evening in support of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum brought together great international stars who showed off all kinds of clothes. The looks of Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian and Glenn Close are unmissable.
The most successful charity events , those that attract donations and spotlights, are those that know how to mix social intent and worldliness, heart and luxury in a balanced way. Year after year, the Met Gala always manages to achieve this objective and to be talked about above all for the elegance and unscrupulousness that can be admired along its catwalk. The 2022 edition was no exception. It is now impossible to consider it just a charity evening.
What is the Met Gala, the most famous charity evening in the world
For those few who still don't know it, it's good to say a few words about the Met Gala and its history. It is a historic charity event , born in 1948, which aims to raise funds to support the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum in New York (in fact, the real name of the event would be Costume Institute Gala). The 400 lucky participants (before Covid there were 600) shell out up to 35 thousand euros to be there. Beyond the social intent, however, the Met Gala, over the decades, has transformed into one of the most famous luxury events in the world , with stars competing to be present and to stand out with their dress. In fact, every year the Costume Institute chooses a theme to inspire the participants' clothes . In this way, the Gala turns into a creativity competition, with dresses of all shapes parading on the red carpet.
Met Gala 2022, the most talked about looks
And this is what also happened in the 2022 edition , which took place on May 2nd . Chosen theme: Gilded glamour , or the golden era of style made in the USA. Space, therefore, for sumptuous dresses, important jewels, corsets. There were many jaw-dropping looks, but there were also some discordant looks. Blake Lively is certainly not among them. Her outfit, in fact, did not disappoint expectations, also becoming the protagonist of an amazing transformation . The actress showed up on the red carpet with a dress that was reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty and which, in the middle of the party, even changed colour, thanks to a spectacular change of clothes, which took place in the center of a staircase. Definitely more sober but no less appropriate, the Ferragnez couple showed off a black look with golden details. Furthermore, Chiara Ferragni's dress was a heartfelt homage to the last collection (1997) by Gianni Versace, brother of her friend Donatella. Kim Kardashian has also chosen the path of homage, in her case to a diva of the caliber of Marylin Monroe. The very popular show girl, in fact, lost 7 kilos to fit into the sheath dress that the iconic actress wore when she sang happy birthday to John Kennedy. In closing, honorable mention also deserves Sarah Jessica Parker , in a sumptuous long dress, Cara Delivingne , who dared to go "almost naked", and the immortal Glenn Close , wrapped in Peccioli pink.
